Who Runs the Course?
The week will be run by Rob Johnson MIC & IML and Sandy Paterson MIC & IML.
Between us we have more than 15 years of working as International Mountain Leaders all around the world and have worked on IML training and assessment courses at both National Centres. We are both MTUK course directors for the ML scheme and additionally have experience on all of the NGB awards between us, right up to MIC training and assessment courses. Perhaps even more importantly we are both active IML’s working overseas on a regular basis each year in a wide variety of locations.

Whats Included?
